Marvel vs Capcom 3 Screenshots Most Impressive

Capcom has released some rather impressive looking screenshots of crossover fighting game Marvel vs Capcom 3, the first new title in the series for 10 years:

marvel-vs-capcom-3-screens-008

It is said they are aiming for a “comic book” style, and it shows – the shots may actually be better than the comics on which they are based.

There is of course the unfortunate phenomenon of “pre-release screenshots bordering on fraud” to consider (and Capcom offers up the usual “development shots” disclaimer), but even allowing for this the game looks set to be an impressive reboot for the series.

The game is due in the spring of 2011, for both PS3 and Xbox 360.

    Yuck, I don't like the art direction at all. It's a major step down from Street Fighter 4 and Tatsunoko vs Capcom. The characters look like generic plastic renderings. Major disappointment in my opinion.

    well...the last thing important on a fighting game is graphic...nice history, nice soundtrack and a good balacing is the major, lol. Because of this, tekken 6 and melty are dominating the popularity in japan even with the release of Super street figther 4...and because of this that even capcom fans prefear third strike to ssf4

    This looks really flashy. All those bright colors seem like the game would be dangerous to play if I were an LSD user.

    I gotta say, it certainly does have that comic book feel alright. While I'm not a fan of the style, I do have to admit that last screen shot of Ironman and his BFL looks awesome.

    All this can only lead to one logical conclusion:

    Tatsunoko vs Marvel vs Capcom

    Not quite sure about the hit effects. Too flashy and exaggerated.

    I think they had it right on the SF:Third Strike game. It looked like something straight out of an anime. I agree with you.

    You're just used to 2D fighting games like I am...

    I know it's weird seeing MVC in 3D, but I want to see Tron Bonne in 3D like in Megaman Legends...And Roll...

    Whooohooo! Impressive! Not that it's any better than the MC2.... But it's a start! I guess when you put it in graphics-wise PS3 everything is better!

    That's what I was thinking, maybe not exactly the same but I remember using Megaman back in #2 and surprisingly managed to out-do my friends who used him.

    I loled at the time when one of them said "I didn't know you can charge his weapon?"

    I really hate the coment of '' it looks better than the comics''

    Theres always have to be some kind of comment against non japanese comics... but you are not going to say something like ''it looks better than some mangas'' right?

    im an old schooler and i think the street fighter 4 incarntions are crap. the character models are ugly(especially the girls) anymore and i doesn't have that old street fighter feel when you first pick it up. i do not approve. i havent seen much for marvel vs capcom the to judge it but based on ss4 it will look much the same.

    Sadly the game will use the scrub friendly 3 button configuration of tatsunoko vs capcom.

    fighting has gone from classic hard to execute combo
    into more flashy easy to execute combo...
    i do not have high hope on this...
    graphic wise is impressive...

    but consider how they screw up MvC2 with pile of unlimited combo..i would not have high hope on the balance of this game to make it enjoyable to be played casually without getting pawned by unlimited combo

    can't wait. so long as the characters are balanced and they take out some of the clone characters, i'm good. also, Deadpool had been confirmed and Chun-Li is obviously going to be in there from a silhouette. There needs to be a DLC demo soon..,

    I just hope it is balanced, as Marvel VS Capcom 2 definitely was not. Cable's power levels were >9000.

    PS3 and 360 only? Why no Wii? The Wii is the number one console in terms of sales, you know.

    WAKE UP CRAPCOM

    A) Most 2D Fighter fans are on the PS3/360, NOT the Wii. All the Wii has is TvC and a few ports of PS2 games for their 2D fighter selection.
    B) Developing it for the Wii would double the amount of development time and money spent. It's because TvC was on the Wii that it couldn't be ported to the PS3/360.
    C) They've already said that MvC3 will have a heavy online component - which is something that requires too much effort and not enough reward on the Wii.
    D) The Wii most likely would be completely incapable of handling visuals like this - or at the very least, would have to nerf the tag-team play on account of it being a 3-on-3 game. Remember X-Men vs Street Fighter on PS1? No one wants to experience that again.

    All in all, making this for the Wii would be a complete disaster. It's not going to happen. Just because it's the number one console in terms of sales DOES NOT MEAN that you are going to sell more of your game on the system. The audience is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. This is a system where Carnival Games is a top seller.

    I'd rather see a PC port, but after what happened to SF4, there is little, if any hope.

    I'm still hoping for SSF4PC... technically SF4 was designed for "PC" though, arcade wise anyway. Not exactly a port, but it is pretty lightweight.

    Meh the Wii is pretty much last generation, hell I play Wii games on my PC using a Wiimote:

    Besides, Capcom already gave a VS title for the Wii. Also has ridiculous controls for the mote, not that it's something people would opt to use though. Just wanted to mention it since it's hilarious how they made a 6 button/key fighter be only able to use pretty much one button. It's that dumbed down, just like a lot of Wii controls and games.

    what the hell are you talking about?

    MvC and MvC2 were the pinnacle of fighter games that anyone could pick up and play

    just because any noob can pick it up and play, doesn't mean they can be good at it

    look at BlazBlue and TvC, noobs don't stand a chance against veterans, but they can still play it well enough to have some fun

    Trigger, Roll, Tron, even the Servibots have gotten Rockman Dash love in recent fighters. How about that villain so evil that he could smile and make us crap our pants?

    Talking 'bout some JUNO, put him up against Iron Man or Wesker for a good show.

    F*ck yeah I would love to see Megaman Juno and Albert Wesker duke it out..!

    If Chris Redfield is in MVS3, then Wesker ain't far behind~
